Save to active project


The contributors' judicious advice and gracious attention to detail greatly facilitated the completion of this intensely collaborative project. Susan Feagin "Imagining Emotions and Appreciating Fiction" (chapter 3) first appeared in the Canadian Journal of Philosophy (vol. 18, no. 3, pp. 485-500) and is published here courtesy of the University of Calgary Press. Robert Solomon "In Defense of Sentimentality" (chapter 14) first appeared in Philosophy and Literature (vol. 14, pp. 304-23) and is published here, in revised form, courtesy of the Johns Hopkins University Press. The section on kitsch in chapter 14 also appeared, in a different form, in the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism (vol. 49, pp. 1-14) and is used here courtesy of the editors of the journal. Mette Hjort wishes to acknowledge the generous support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She is also indebted to colleagues at the Institute for Research in the Humanities, Kyoto University, for their hospitality.
